    Default Clarkson in 'car phone' photo probe

    Police are examining a photograph apparently showing Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson using a mobile phone while driving.

    Adam Blake, 22, and Hayley Byford, 21, claim they photographed Clarkson on the phone as he did 70mph in a rare, 1970s 6.3l left-hand drive V8 600 Grosser Mercedes on the M40 in Oxfordshire.

    A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: "We have been handed the photograph and we will be looking at it with a view to a possible prosecution. If we have got evidence we think could be supported in court, we will take action."

    The photograph was given to police by the Daily Mirror newspaper, which was initially sent it by Mr Blake and Miss Byford.

    Mr Blake told the newspaper on Tuesday: "We could not believe that we'd caught him out. My girlfriend saw he was on his mobile. She grabbed hers and took a picture of him."

    The newspaper claimed it later confronted Clarkson at his Chipping Norton home where he first denied being in the car and, on seeing the picture, said: "Er, that isn't a phone." Clarkson then reportedly said: "Look, I write a column for another newspaper. I'm not allowed to talk you."

    Drivers caught using mobiles at the wheel face three points on their licence and a £60 fine.

    A spokeswoman for the BBC's Top Gear programme said this was not a BBC matter and therefore offered no comment.

    Superintendent Mick Doyle, head of roads policing for Thames Valley Police, said: "We know that using a mobile phone whilst driving is extremely dangerous.

    "It has the same effect on a person as being just over the legal limit for drink driving. To use a mobile phone whilst driving at any time is dangerous and at a high speed on the motorway it is simply stupid."

    Clarkson writes for The Sun, Daily Mirror shops Clarkson and can have headlines saying so. It's dirty rivalry basically though tbh I don't think he should have been using the phone while driving and I would think that the Police will just probably give a fine as it's probably his first offence for such a matter.
    I'm a bit mental.
